Michael Joo



Michael Rush speaks with multimedia artist Michael Joo about how he approaches the variety of media with which he works and the ways in growing up in a household of science has this impacted his approach to art. Joo relates his conceptualizations behind such projects as Salt Transfer Cycle and his relationship with animals as well as his considerations of the role of balance in his work, which led him to compare art to religion and faith and its foundation in a certain palpable instability. Identity and the fixity of it are central to much of his work, and he herein discusses how signifiers of identity--clothing, for example--may be utilized to subvert and make more fluid what has unnaturally become variously codified (33 minutes).
